Google Nexus 10 Tablet: 10 Reasons to Buy It
NEWS ANALYSIS: The Google Nexus 10 tablet is finally available, giving tablet buyers a chance to try a mobile device that doesn't have an Apple logo on it.It won’t be long now until Google launches its Nexus 10. The company plans to offer the 16GB tablet on Nov. 13 for $399 in its Google Play store. Already, reviews are coming in discussing some of the device’s bright spots and shortcomings. Like every other slate on the market, including Apple’s iPads, the Nexus 10 isn’t perfect, reviewers say. However, it might be a worthwhile buy for at least some customers. With that in mind, it’s a good time to discuss some of the Nexus 10’s highlights. Although it’s not as powerful as Apple’s fourth-generation iPad and lacks the 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) service that customers would have liked to have seen, the Nexus 10 offers some nice features that can’t go overlooked. Plus, it’s being offered by Google, which immediately lends it a bit more credibility in tablet shoppers’ minds than a Barnes & Noble or Vizio model. Simply put, the Nexus 10 might actually have some nice things going for it. So, let’s take an in-depth look at the Nexus 10 and highlight some of the features that make it a worthwhile choice for some consumers. 1. It has a bigger screen than the iPad
At its iPad Mini event, Apple touted the vastly increased screen real estate customers get with the 7.9-inch slate compared with those running with a 7-inch screen. Given that logic, wouldn’t Google’s 10-inch Nexus 10 then beat the fourth-generation iPad in terms of viewable space? Those who want a bigger screen and the ability to see more of a Web page or video might want to opt for Google’s tablet.
